AMA Jr. Camp



So what exactly is AMA Jr. Camp? A week of learning, flying, fixing, building, experimentation, challenges, and laughter. AMA Jr. Camp is an online, virtual camp experience, developed and presented by the Academy of Model Aeronautics. It is designed to be a fun, preparatory course for youth ages 5-12 to learn model aviation fundamentals that will help to prepare them for future, more advanced aeromodeling opportunities. The presentation will include conversations with aviation professionals who have a passion for model aviation.

AMA Jr. Camp is free, but to receive the AMA Jr. Camp Flight Pack which contains not only project instructions but also most of the materials needed to complete the STEM-based activities each morning, you will need to purchase an AMA Flight Pack for the year that you want to participate in AMA Jr. Camp. Please note that there are only enough materials per Flight Pack for one camper, so multiple Flight Packs are recommended for families signing up multiple children. 

Do I have to purchase a Flight Pack?  No, but in order to ensure that you have all the materials on hand for the activities, it is recommended that you do. We will release a materials list before Jr. Camp to allow families to source appropriate materials. Call the AMA at (765) 287-1256 / 1-800-I-FLY-AMA

The AMA would like to thank Legacy Society Member Don McWhirter and his family for their generous grant making Jr. Camp possible.
